First Listen: The Trammps return to get some "Lovin"

The Trammps have been a long time SoulTracks favorite. Fueled by the drum work of Earl Young and the vocals of the late Jimmy Ellis, The Trammps were among the first great disco groups.

The Trammps first hit our turntables in 1972 with their cover with,"Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart" and "Sixty Minute Man" frome their debut Legendary Zing album. They are best known for their Grammy winning song, "Disco Inferno," which was originally released in 1976, but went on to become a worldwide smash hit when it was included on the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. They had a big top 5 single in the UK with "Hold Back The Night" in 1976, and followed with such hits as "That's Where the Happy People Go," "Hooked For Life," "The Night The Lights Went Out," "Stop and Think."

Now, after years away from the studio, group co-founder Earl You has issued a new single with his current version of the group, Earl Young's Trammps. As were the group's biggest hits, this new song was recorded live in Philadelphia. Earl Young stated on his Facebook page, "we are jamm'in. great philly musicians...you play live or go home!! 'that's how we do it in philly."

The song was written by, The Steals Brothers, who have penned great classics like "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" for the Spinners, "Honeybee" for Gloria Gaynor, along with many others. Please give our newest ''FIRST LISTEN'' a listen and tell us what you think.
